Colossians 3:15 Parallel
Commentary
Vincent's Word Studies

Peace of Christ

Which comes from Christ. See John 14:27; Ephesians 2:14.

Rule (βραβεύετω)

Lit., be umpire. Only here in the New Testament. See on Colossians 2:18. The previous references to occasions for meekness, long-suffering, forbearance, forgiveness, etc., indicate a conflict of passions and motives in the heart. Christ is the one who adjusts all these, so that the metaphorical sense is appropriate, as in Colossians 2:18.

Called in one body

See Ephesians 4:4. So that ye are in one body according to your call.
